Tidewater Community College retained Commonwealth Architects, along with design-build partner S.B. Ballard Construction Company, to convert an existing wing of the Manning Building into Tidewater Community College’s Regional Workforce Development Center. Located on TCC’s Suffolk campus, this 26,500 square foot project included design and construction to develop the center lobby and west wing of the Manning Building to house the Center. The building now provides much needed offices, classrooms, computer labs, and a webinar space. In addition, the lobby was refurbished to create a more inviting and welcoming entrance for the Center.
